The written parts are the same as the older and original, but the most importatnt part is missing--no pictures. It is very difficult to have a bird identification book without pictures. Very disappointing.

This book had none of the enchanting pictures of the original! I was very disappointed ! This was a beautiful book on my childhood. Your edition was a cheap version.

If you want to know what a "living book" is, just read the first couple chapters of this and you will understand. So much fun to read and so very educational.

I have only read some of the book and I found it fun to read and very educational for children. But they don't even realize they are learning! That's the best part!

Loved how this story form teaches about the appearance and characteristics of birds and how some of them are related. There are no pictures, so I just used the internet to provide picture visuals each time we would finish a chapter.
